thing than the religion of islam which is practiced by so many people in some way different ways more than a billion people in the world. but i think this misunderstanding of the nature of the threat of the ideology of islamism the human rights of muslim heritage themselves persist today. i would argue and see this at the moment in the press coverage of what is happening in countries like egypt. doing this kind of work on the front lines without international support, without international comprehension of the challenge that you face is an incredibly lon lonely endeav. i have seen this firsthand. as a lawyer told me back in december 2012, at a time when entire northern half of her country was under jihadists occupation, she said international solidarity is very helpful. when you live such a crisis alone, it is much more difficult to bear. what my book is really about is trying to break this wall of loneliness and silenced by connecting the people who are doing these struggles on the ground, the people around the world who stand for similar values of tolerance and equality and against
, the crucible of the world's three great monotheistic religions become known not as the subject of constant struggle, but as the golden city of peace and unity embodied the aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. peace is possible because we have courageous leaders who have already taken significant political risks for peace. the time is approaching when they will have to take even more. they have shown real courage, both president abbas and prime minister netanyahu. president abbas has made tough choices. he has stayed the course, despite people in his team saying you ought to get out of here, look at those settlements, they are making a fool of you. believe me, that battle has been going on. i deal with it every week. at the same time, there has been israeli soldiers shot and killed in the west bank and other acts of incitement. prime minister netanyahu has made tough choices. just this week, he reaffirmed his commitment to a palestinian state. he said israel is ready for an historic peace. peace is possible today because the arab league has also made tough choices. for the first
's no great religion that doesn't speak to this. at root, every great religion has some equivalent of the golden rule, some equivalent of the idea that i am my brother's keeper and my sister's keeper. some notion that even as we each take individual responsibility for acting in a responsible and righteous way, part of our obligation is to the larger world. and to future generations. you know, i think pope francis is showing himself to be just an extraordinarily thoughtful and soulful messenger of peace and justice. i haven't had a chance to meet him yet. but everything that i've read, everything that i've seen from him indicates the degree to which he is trying to remind us of those core obligations. and as i said in my speech yesterday, we live in a economy that is the greatest generator of wealth in history. we're risk takers, we're entrepreneurs, and we're rugged individuals. that's part of what makes us great. that's why we continue to be a magnet for strivers from all around the world. they think i'm not going to be held back by conventions and traditions. i'm going to go out

. that is the title of james hirsen bought. what is going? >> hollywood has embraced environmentalism as a religion they have a high priest the nobel laureate laureate, of the oscar winner of court you have to accept what he says with a knife faith and without logic. >> but some blindness to the fact you mention al gore i was surprised to see build the monster homes while preaching? >> the hypocrisy is monumental the 19,000 square foot mansion in tennessee, a group could get a hold of his utilities was 20 times of the average american also mention at mont to cboe near zero pres house. hn: are any of those environmental activist not hypocrites? to some live the lif? >> ed begley, jr., a darrell hill and that, they actually live a lifestyle consistent with what they preach but that is rare. the vast majority of celebrities take opulence to the highest level. john: ptt said turn your lights out but also he has bi houses. reasono be combined his video. >> i pledge to turn the lights off i would leave them on but i will turn them off. >> is the unaware of the hypocrisy? >> i just think he goes out on to
on mandela's message of peace which transcended re and religion while his lead a service of the brightest in the methodist church in johannesburg. monday marks the formal start of the week long state funeral for the man who helped and apartheid. ike. gathering on a hillside overlooking johannesburg on sunday morning. the south africans awoke to a day of prayer sunday marks the official start of the week the mourning period for nelson mandela. i had plenty of activity as of the time many stories to his collective eyes natural holiday to me. do we allow police to you. i see on tv crowds across the country continue to pay their respects. some are even hoping to pass on mandela's message to those who didn't know him. plus he didn't see teach us to attend. he never really knew him. um what kind of a different county. and to be on someone. the sun stayed my little surreal to appeal to me and asked so on. it's a sad day that the city to the south african president jacob tomorrow and monday of the second wife winnie mandela attended the service of the riots methodist church to mark the day over i
no country from morocco to pakistan in which christians can freely practice their religion, end of quote. he continued, quote, there is a severe danger as we start to celebrate the feast of christmas in this country that all christianity will be almost completely erased from the traditional middle east holy land of the bible. mary to uld not take egypt because jesus would not have been safe there today. to follow on sir baldry's line of thinking, the patriarch abraham would also have a difficult time surviving in iraq having come from er, which is now nasiriyah. jonah would be hard pressed to make it to naviniva, which is now in the most you will area, and paul could scarcely travel the road to demascus in syria. the debate in the house of commons began with a staggering statistic, namely that one christian is killed every 11 minutes somewhere on earth for their faith. one christian is killed every 11 minutes somewhere on earth for their faith. the focus of the commons debate was on the persecution of christians, several noted that whether or not you are a person of faith, all should be conc
the relationship between russia and israel has been transformed. had he balance off the religion with iran in this very important position -- and russia's case -- relationship with israel? it could be very interesting to russiahis about how balance is off all of these competing demands. will make one brief comment. i think russia and the u.s. have the same interest so far as iran and nuclear weapons are concerned. nuclear powers that have nuclear weapons do not want additional powers to have nuclear weapons. it is as basic as that. i think we share that interest. this is why i think we will work together to see whether we can transform the interim agreement into something more binding. that is a good accommodation to pursue. i am a little less rosy about the overall historical relationship between russia and iran. we elected iran against russia on more than one occasion, and iran and russia have had some real problems, territorial problems throughout the years. imperial problems. so i think those who ignore history or geo-strategy would be too sanguine about the long- range prospects of th
's struggle and inspire people no matter their race, religion. nelson mandela's name will be among them. i was just awed by this guy but in person he was more curious about the united states, the civil rights movement in this country than he was interested in talking about himself. again, that's evidence of what a curious mind is, what an open-minded person nelson mandela was. >> he got out of prison in 1990, well after the civil rights movement had undertaken in earnest in this country. he was fascinated by it. do you think he learned from it? >> he certainly did. one of the things that strikes me as you ask the question is that he was asking me about not only the civil rights movement. remember, there is a big difference in south africa the majority is black. in the united states the majority is white. mandela was fascinated with the idea that here in the united states black people were able to have a civil rights move lt and a nonviolent civil rights movement and achieve rights for themselves under the constitution. he was taken with the founding fathers. he knew about it. in south afri
political religion known as jujay. >> talk about the timing of this. it's interesting that merrill newman was released as vice biden arrives in south korea. >> for the moment we don't know much about the negotiations that went into freeing merrill newman. the vice president by himself said he was not involved in the negotiations to free merrill newman. biden being in asia when you have the vice president, it's easy to make those kind of connections. he was in sea. right now south korea and north korea are not talking. the other country could have been china. it's not clear if they were pressed to help. >> talk about the relations with the united states and north korea. will this impact that relationship. >> for the moment we can't tell. it's important to keep m mind that kenneth bae is still being held in north korea. it's a major contention between the states and north korea. what do the north koreans want? they want to engage with the yates and have bilateral talks. the americans are not willing to do so unless the north koreans will give up their nuclear program. that is something they
, it's more about that thanes the about some sort of traditional belief and religion. >> we can tell, we can see around you, people are mourning, but when you talk to them, what is the sense of loss? what are they mourning? >> reporter: they're of course mourning nelson mandela, but mandela was like a mirror, he reflected back to south africa, what they want to be, what this nation imagined itself to be. perhaps an idealistic vision, an complicated often -- very visionary leadership we saw in mandel l.a. you spoke about it a little bit earlier. he really played the long game, didn't he? he looked ahead, he planned, he was a man who really thought about being a symbol of rec reconciliati reconciliation. now compare that to president zuma whose leadership and whose government seems to lurch from crisis to crisis, there seems to be an overwhelming focus on scandals or the personal enrichment whether it's linked to president zuma or those close to him. according to many south africans there's a real current in this current government of the trappings of power, of using the state to furth
traditional belief in religion. >> we can see around you people are mourning, but when you talk to them, what is the sense of loss? what are they mourning? >> reporter: you know, they are, of course, mourning nelson mandela, but just remember mandela was like a mirror. he reflected back to south africa what they wanted to be, what this nation imagined itself to be. perhaps an idealistic vision. today 20 years later, this is a very complicated, often divided at times nation. now, what they also i think are mourning is that very vision of leadership we saw in mandela. you spoke about it a little earlier. he really played the long he? he looked ahead. he planned. he was a tactician, a pragmatist. he was a man who really thought about being a symbol of reconciliation. compare that with president zuma whose leadership and whose government seems to lurch from crisis to crisis. there seems to be an overwhelming focus on scandals over personal enrichment, whether it's president zuma or those close to him. they seem to have according to many south africans, there is a real focus of this current gover
can do better and knitting mills as we look at good religion and wellness as well. >> my name is rachel gore won the academy for state health currency. what areas you mentioned the role of state. i was wondering if you could talk about what the long-term consequences easy for the different experiences people will be having from state to state. a state like new york where they've done a marketplace in their expanding a decade, consumers are having a much different experience than maybe mississippi that has a federal marketplace and aeronautics unit. speak not well, i've always thought that having remodels first aid exchanges is really a very good thing. we have the state models and we are at the are these the united states to california and kentucky in a number of states, washington, connecticut, obviously massachusetts, they've done extremely well and their performance out that to be highlighted and studied as to what it is they're doing that other states failed to do so far? the second model is the hybrid model we got partial federal involvement and partial state involvement.
. somebody a strong bailiff in their religion. i have a strong belief in my religion. it doesn't mean i'm going an extreme and do something violent that's what we have to deal with. we have to deal with the elements in whatever walk of life that will turn to violence and challenge not only societies that can't take care of themselves, but also us in our way of life. i think that's a difficult challenge that we're facing. i think as we look around the world and see societies and the underpinnings whey describe in some there's a sense of hopelessness. that's where we have to understand that. we have to decide whether we're going do anything about it or not. some cases question some case we can't. what we would like to do is help other nations and other regions of the world, certainly to be able to help themselves. that's what a global leader should do. i think that's what we try do all the time. as i see the military, with the military has been involved in over the years. that's with we try to do. it doesn't make any difference what their intkd. other questions? let me go income the back.
have identified whiidentify which people. owe 'people. this was his religion. >> we, you are absolutely right. even though he went through chechen prison, whenever people from different denominations came in, they obviously wanted to see him, so he would go and sit and listen very attentively. that was yet another of mandela's personas. >> as a politician, let's end with this. one of the most remarkable things was when there was a changeover in power, ordinarily, you wipe out who was there. especially under conditions like apartheid. how did he sell the idea of keeping africanos in government, how did he make that okay with the african people? >> i think personally at a fundamental level, he recognized that africanos were south africans just like everyone of us. that's a lessen he learned in prison and emphasized in prison. he had a cordial relationship and we learned from him. the most important message who to trust, please dobi don't be consumed by hatred. it no cusses on the wrong things. that's a message he carried outside of prison. amazing, he was able to carry huge numbers of peo
of marriage and all of that. i agree that you can't force a religion. you certainly cannot legislate a religion to accept it, but there is the reality, today is, that there's going to be probably 17 states by the end of this year who are waiting for the illinois law to get signed and new mexico, supreme court case to be decided, but there could be up to 17 states by the end of this year in the next several months that have gay marriage. that number is going to grow. it's not going to decrease. so this debate is on the brink of becoming moot. >> i mean, sure there are some social costs. we look at countries such as benevolence or sweden, the cohabitation rates have risen. less people getting the. more people are putting marriage off. >> is that because of gay marriage? >> harvey i think so spent it's because straight people don't want to get married. they just want to shack up spent i think we've made into a quaint social custom instead of, i think our policy would be better served strengthening marriage and making sure every child our gay speedy so how does gay marriage we can -- how

of the parliamentarians, they religion against their to actually have a nuclear weapon. it's not like there hasn't been a debate within iran itself in regards to nuclear weapons program. it's not like all of iranians have said they want to move forward with nuclear weapons. they have been divided with their own society. they have that constant debate themselves. i think the iranian people made a choice when they decided to elect a more moderate president this time than they had previously. and so part of the voices of the tonian people are starting stare up also. they want to -- my hope is, and we will see whether or not they abide by the agreement and move forward, but my hope is that they would want to be a part of the international community. they cannot be part of the international community if in fact they have a nuclear weapon. as i said, it is important that russia and china has a stake in is also because here are individual countries who previously had not had a stake in this. important for them to have this p5+1 come together. if iran really wants to get back to the international committee, th
their religion is to destroy us. host: we will have you respond to that. negotiating in a religious way? guest: he is right to a great extent. we arenians have said the great evil and they're going to wipe israel off the face of the earth. in the middle eastern culture, it is looked upon with high regard to get the best deal possible no matter what it takes, that includes lying. that is one reason the gulf states like to work with the u.s., because we are honest and transparent. they like doing business with us as opposed to their partners or even the communist chinese. they like doing business with people that are honest and transparent. that is an underpinning to these negotiations. once again, if you are willing to blow yourself up and commit suicide in order to blow up other people, you are not a rational person. up other people, you are not a rational person. that is to you are dealing with when you are dealing with uranian's. host: -- iranians. host: you are saying that all middle eastern countries are this way? part of the middle eastern culture to get the best deal that you can, wheth
